Terriers feel the Kane as Harry hits a double

Pochettino's side ran out deserved winners, sitting in third place in the league before the 3pm kick-offs began.

Mauricio Pochettino says he is proud of everyone at the club for getting a good result against Huddersfield after their midweek game in Cyprus.

Spurs led 3-0 after 24 minutes, with one coming from Davies and a pair from irresistible Harry Kane.

"A big challenge. I think they will be very motivated to play against us and have had the whole week to prepare for the game against Tottenham", he said.

Ben Davies and Moussa Sissoko were on the scoresheet for the north London side. Huddersfield will need to score more often if they are to stay up this season. As the old cliche has it, much better and richer sides than the Terriers will be eviscerated by Spurs this season. Huddersfield captain Tommy Smith found some space on the edge of the box and he drove one towards the bottom left corner, but Lloris got down low to his right and pushed the ball away from goal. "His energy is fantastic", Pochettino said.

Their intensity of attacking and indeed scoring perhaps inevitably couldn't continue after the break, and Huddersfield gained a little more control in the second half.

This is the first Premier League meeting between the two clubs.

Pochettino is expecting a tough encounter against Premier League newcomers Huddersfield, who have kept four clean sheets in their opening six league games.

David Wagner jokingly hopes Harry Kane will be ill when asked how Huddersfield will contain the Tottenham striker.

Tottenham, meanwhile, will regard themselves as viable title candidates, having evidently improved upon the away form that proved to be their downfall last season.

The latter will finish September with an nearly absurd 11 goals for club and two more for England.

He is probably the closest player to the Denmark global, named Spurs' supporters' player of the season a year ago, in the squad but Pochettino was reluctant to compare them, adding: "It's bad to compare two players".

Huddersfield Town head into their final Premier League fixture before the global break looking to maintain an unbeaten home record which has helped the Terriers maintain a position in the top half of the standings since their promotion to the top flight. The Terriers have, however, had an easy schedule to start the campaign, playing Crystal Palace, Newcastle, Southampton, West Ham, Leicester and Burnley. It's thus not a surprise that, when up against the best in the Premier League, they might take the odd thrashing.
